host Adam McManus concludes his 2-part interview with Dr. Erwin Lutzer, Pastor Emeritus of The Moody Church in Chicago, who
has written a new book entitled We Will Not Be Silenced! Responding Courageously to Our Culture’s Assault on Christianity. (Listen to Part 1 here)
Lutzer talks about:
- the Left’s ability to promote propaganda. He cites George Orwell’s
novel 1984 and the chilling totalitarian state with its
“Ministry of Truth which brainwashed the people. The slogan
of Oceania is “War is peace; freedom is slavery; ignorance is
strength.” Listen to how he connects the dots to us today.
sexualization of the children. He points to the fact that in
2004, Pew Research polls showed 60% of Americans opposed homosexual
faux marriage. Today only 40% oppose it. He explains to what he
attributes that dramatic change.
- how radical
secularists have joined with radical Islamists to fight, side by
side, against Christianity in America.
- the key to
Saul Alinsky’s success, as Marxist community organizer in Chicago,
was to shut people down with direct, personalized criticism and
ridicule instead of debating ideas.
- the compelling
passage in Revelation 3 in which Jesus confronted the church of
Sardis. His message is something the American church desperately
needs to hear today.
